How to get a PNG image from a region/SC4M


Requirements for this tutorial:
-Windows (preference XP, thats what im using for this tutorial, if you are a macintosh user i dont know differences for both operative systems)
-SimCity 4 (preference Rush Hour or Deluxe, not sure how this works at normal SimCity 4)
-SC4TerraFormer (download here, you have to register at LEX Exchange for download)

Notes from the author: Im using a spanish windows XP operative system, please follow this tutorial carefully and instructions.


Step A: Open your region map.
Note:
If you did download your region from a SC4M, please follow this tutorial in how to get it at TerraFormer.

-Open your region map at terraformer. (usually you should open a folder located at your documents/SimCity 4/Regions.

-At global tools click on export and save it as PNG image file. (you can save it anywhere you can find it easily, in my case I save it in desktop)

-After done just click ok and close the program.

That's all  :)
